Green Products I Love


Larabars are tasty energy bars made of simple and healthy ingredients. LARABAR describes their bars as a “delicious blend of unsweetened fruits, nuts and spices. Pure and simple, just as nature intended”. Their ingredients are very limited compared to other energy bars like Cliff Bars. They are gluten-free and most of them are vegan.

To me, they are a healthy substitute for a dessert. LARABAR flavors include: Cherry Pie, Apple Pie, Chocolate Coconut, Cinnamon Roll, Peanut Butter Cookie, Peanut Butter and Jelly, Tropical Fruit Tart, Carrot Cake, Chocolate Chip Brownie, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip, Cashew Cookie, Pecan Pie, Banana Bread, Lemon Bar, Key Lime Pie, Ginger Snap, and Coconut Cream Pie.

So far I have tried Cherry Pie, Apple Pie, and Lemon Bar and I love them all! Cherry Pie is my favorite, however…and it only has 3 simple ingredients: dates, almonds, and unsweetened cherries!

I just wish they were organic. Other than that, they are wonderful. You can buy a variety pack of Larabars here. I, however, purchase mine at Kroger in the Natural Food Section.

2. Shark Steam Pocket Mop

I hate old fashion mops. They are gross, dirty, filthy things. But this mop, is nothing like the ordinary mop! First of all, you don’t use any chemicals with it to clean your floors; all you need is water! You fill the “pocket mop” with water, plug the electrical cord in, wait a few minutes for it to heat the water up, pump the handle a couple of times to produce steam, and you’re good to mop! The cloth pads are removable so you can throw them in the washing machine and reuse them.

How great is that? This is the most awesome, green, toxic-free way to clean your floors. I love my Shark Mop!

3. Aubrey Organics Natural Missst Herbal Hairspray- Super Hold

Aubrey Organics Hairspray

Why do I love this hairspray? Well for starters, it doesn’t smell like your average, toxic, cancer causing hair spray…Let’s just say I don’t cough and gag every time I use it. lol. It’s a more natural hairspray made with organic lavender and various other elements. I couldn’t tell you exactly what it smells like, except that it smells like a wonderful mixture of herbs. I like it; it smells good, it smells natural, and it holds my hair like a hair spray is supposed to. Oh, and this product has a very low toxicity ranking on the Cosmetic Database (3 out of 10)!




4. Yes To Carrots Lip Butter

Say Yes To Carrots Lip Butter This lip butter is so awesome that it’s USDA certified organic! I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the USDA Organic label on them on Target! ahhh. The lip butter’s main ingredients are coconut oil, olive oil, and beeswax. (Sorry if you’re a hardcore vegan). The scents come in Berry, Mint, Carrot, Citrus, Mango, and Pomegranate. When I purchased mine at Target I got a three pack with Berry, Mint and Carrot.

The berry scented one rocks! It reminds me of strawberries and raspberries. It has a slight sweet taste, but it’s not very strong. I’m not too fond of the carrot scent because…well, it smells like carrots and I prefer to smell sweet like fruit. The mint scent reminds me of those round peppermint candies, or I guess a candy cane, and it leaves your lips feeling cool and tingly. I haven’t tried any of the other lip butter scents but I can’t wait to try the melon and pomegranate.

5. 7th Generation Natural Laundry Detergent

7th generation laundry detergentI love, love, love 7th Generation’s natural powdered laundry detergent! It is a vegetable-based, biodegradable, hypo-allergenic, phosphate free laundry detergent and I freaking love it! Not only is it safe for you and me, but it’s safe for the environment. The powdered detergent comes in two scents: White Flower & Bergamot Citrus, and Free & Clear. I use the White Flower & Bergamot Citrus. It has a very light, pleasing floral scent that isn’t too strong like Tide and other brands. The detergent cleans my clothes well and leaves them with a soft pleasant scent that is not overpowering or chemically smelling. This is the only 7th Generation product I have tried so far and I am quite impressed.

  1. I’m glad to hear you love 7th Generation’s laundry detergent. I’ve been getting mixed reviews about it, and have thought about making my own, but in the end it’s admittedly easier to just buy some.
